Stirplate.io Wants to Be the Cloud Storage Platform for Scientists

While the public often idolizes individual scientists, research and scientific progress is often a collaborative process.  Scientists need the ability to share data and insights with each other quickly in order to move the process along.  What complicates this need is that it is also necessary for scientists to keep their research data safe.  They can’t simply make their data open and available to anyone.  They can only share with the colleagues with whom they already collaborate.  Stirplate.io is a cool product in technology that aims to satisfy both these needs in helping scientists store and organize their research.  This cool product is a cloud storage service designed specifically for the needs of scientists when dealing with research data.  Sirplate.io lets scientists store their research in the cloud securely, but also adds sharing options that are essential in helping researchers to collaborate.  Sitrplate.io locks down all data so only researchers can access it in the cloud when they want, but the cool product does allow users to flag specific data sets for sharing with colleagues that are also on Stirplate.io.  Any users who have problems connecting to the service and viewing their data sets may have hardware or connection issues requiring help from a cloud computer support company.

Alexander Zacke Has Made an Art and Antiques Auction House Online with Auctionata
